Clazona Lipsticks- Review and Swatches

Hello Beauties!

Today I am going to talk about every makeup junkie’s first love. Yes! You got it right I am talking about lipsticks. I have been a lipstick lover since forever.
Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick. 
-Gwyneth Paltrow

Recently when I was just randomly checking out a makeup store I found some clazona lipsticks, since it was the first time I saw that brand I was a little skeptical whether to buy it or not but the price was super affordable so I bought one anyway. After using the first one I bought another shade so that means I am impressed.

The lipsticks come in a decent bronze color plastic packaging with logo on top and shade name mentioned on a sticker at bottom, nothing fancy. The shades have numbers but no names I got shade: 344 and shade: 304.

344 is a nude shade with creamy texture. The lipstick glides on smoothly and the color shows up in one swipe. You can also swipe several times to make the color more intense. I have worn this lipstick in my look here.
The lasting power of this particular shade is not very good it only last for about 2-3 hours on my lips. The thing I did not like about this lipstick is that it settles in the fine lines so I need to be extra cautious that the lips are exfoliated before applying.

The second shade I got is 304:
The shade is orange it gives a semi- matte finish but the formula is creamy and easy to apply. It stays longer than the first shade on my lips and it does not settle in the fine lines so I think this one is my favorite among the two. It stays on my lips for about 4-5 hours and even after that it leaves a noticeable tint behind which I do not like. I am wearing this lipstick in one of my looks in this post.

Clazona cosmetics are easily available at most of local cosmetic shops. I got the first one for Rs. 170/- and second for Rs.140/-. The prices may vary at different stores but they are under Rs.200/-
This was the first time I bought any product of this brand and I am quite satisfied with my purchases. Considering the price, the quality is great. After purchasing I searched for this brand and found some great reviews so I think I am trying out some other products of this brand in near future.
Have you tried any products from clazona cosmetics? Write back to me in comments I love hearing from you…
That's it for today… I’ll be back soon

Take care… Bubye!

DIY Room Decor- Switchboard Decor

Hello beauties!
Today I am going to share with you a switch board décor DIY. A few months back I decided to redecorate my room and at that time all I used to do was searching for room décor ideas. I saw this DIY on Pinterest and immediately decided to do it but then I got busy and all my room renovation plans got delayed. Now this weekend I finally decided to resume my room décor project and started with decorating the switchboards in my room.
 Actually I am sharing not one but two DIY’sJ.
I decorated two switchboards in my room; first with a simple printed card that I cut from an old calendar and the other one with glitter.
Things needed:
For this I just needed an old calendar with a picture or some print and some glue.
1-      I measured the board with a scale and cut the old calendar equal to the size of the board.
2-      Then with a blade I made a hole on that calendar sheet equal to the size of switch/button.
3-      Then I Just pasted the sheet on the switch board with the glue.
4-      And the board is ready.
Things needed:
For this I needed some glitter and glue. I bought these bottles of glitter from a stationery shop years ago for some crafts but never used them and I also had this UHU glue at home.
Its better if you remove the board from the wall and put it on a smooth surface but I did not know how to get it off the wall, I tried but the screws were too stubborn so I gave up and started working while the board was still on the wall.
 For details about how I did this DIY read on the steps:
1-      I just took a small amount of glitter out of the bottle and put it on a piece of paper so I do not need to open and close the bottle again and again.
2-      Then I Applied UHU on a small area of the board with one of my fingers.
3-      Then with another clean finger I pressed some glitter lightly over the area on which I applied glue.
4-      I repeat it on the rest of the board till whole board is covered with glitter.
5-      And the board is ready.

Aren’t these DIY’s really simple and easy to do? What do you think about these?
That’s it for today. I hope you liked this post.
I’ll be back soon till then take care.. bubye J

I heart makeup's I heart Obsession palette in born to die- Review and swatches

Hello beauties!

 Today I am going to review an eyeshadow palette for the first time on my blog. Until recently I was not very comfortable with wearing eyeshadows on my hooded eyes but then I started searching and watching tutorials on how to apply eyeshadow on hooded eyes and since then I am hooked to eye makeup.
 Being a newbie I do not own many eyeshadows but I have bought some eyeshadow palettes just recently and I love playing with them. I heart makeup’s I heart Obsession range is one of the best choices for people who are new to eye makeup because you get a lot of good quality shades in very reasonable price. I wanted a neutral color palette that I can wear everywhere especially during day time so I chose the palette in “born to die” after that I have also bought “pure cult”but right now I am reviewing "born to die"only.
This palette contains 10 shadows and is a combination of matte and shimmery finishes. The shades in 1st row are shimmery whereas in 2nd row all shades are matte. All shades are reasonably pigmented but the paler shades are not as pigmented as others. Without any eye primer underneath they last for 4-5 hours on my eyes.
The palette comes in black plastic packaging with transparent lid along with a double ended sponge applicator.

The shades do not have any names so I am using numbers to identify them.

1st row
1st shade is very shimmery silver white shade with very good pigmentation and lasting power but it has an uneven texture. I use it on the inner corners of my eyes and sometimes on my brow bones as highlighter.
2nd is the tan brown shade with little shimmer.
 3rd, 4th and 5th are taupe shades with reasonable pigmentation and look almost similar when applied.
6th is graphite with silver shimmer perfect for evening smoky makeup.

2nd row

7th is pale pink but when applied it looks chalky white. This is not as pigmented as other shades and is least favorite of mine.
8th and 9th are two different shades of brown i.e. light and dark.
10th is a matte gray shade.
I would recommend this palette to everyone who want a good quality work safe palette at reasonable price. The palette is available online on makeup revolution and other makeup websites, I got mine from daraz.pk for Rs.650/-.
I hope you like my review. Have you tried any of the makeup revolutions products? What do you think about them? Share your thoughts with me in the comments I love to hear from you.
Bubye take care…

Klenspop- bunny 3 color lenses Review

Hello Beauties!
Today I am going to talk about something without which I think I can not live. I have been wearing contact lenses everyday for about 7- 8 years because I don’t like wearing spectacles all the time.  I have dark brown eyes and yes I love my eye color but I also love changing eye color so I wear contact lenses in different shades.
Recently, Klenspop gave me an opportunity to try a new brand of contact lenses. I always buy contact lenses from some very reliable shops as you need to be very conscious about quality when buying such stuff so I never bought any lenses online but now I tried klenspop and my experience was amazing. Read on for details:

First: a little bit about Klenspop:
K- lenspop is a leading company of circle and cosmetic lens. They have a large variety of lenses as well as other accessories such as cosmetics, glasses and sunglasses and they ship worldwide.

Second: The packaging of the lens
The lenses I received were packed in many layers to keep them safe and secure during transit. The lenses were in glass vials which ware kept in a cardboard box and then the box was wrapped in bubble wrap and then another cardboard box.

Now details of lenses.
DIA: 14.5 mm
Graphic DIA: 13.3 mm
BC: 8.6 mm
Usage period: 6 months
I got Bunny 3 color lenses in shade gray.
The package also contains a lens case, plastic tweezers and an instruction manual.

My experience:
The color looks very light gray in the container but when I wore them they almost matched my own eye color and looked really natural. This is the reason I love the 3- color lenses because they blend with the natural eye color and do not make you look artificial. These lenses also made my hooded small eyes look a little bigger.
Since I got these lenses I am wearing them every day from 9 AM to 7 PM and I never feel that I am wearing anything in my eyes. They are very comfortable and feel very light in eyes.

I would recommend Klenspop to everyone because:
-They ship worldwide and the delivery is super fast.
-They have a huge collection of not only lenses but also of the accessories such as cosmetics, spectacles and sunglasses.
-The prices are very reasonable.

I hope you like this post.
Bubye for now take care :)
